At the moment, I’m working as a consultant at a Chip Fabrication Lab at IMEC, in Belgium.
How did your experience at INESC TEC contributed to your new professional history?
INESC TEC allowed to improve my experience, by providing me with the opportunity to work at the Centre for Telecommunications and Multimedia (CTM), under the Supervision of Jaime Cardoso, who’s also my PhD supervisor and contributed to an excellent learning experience. I had the chance to work in several projects promoted by India and Portugal, with Vladimiro Miranda, and to be part of several network and collaboration activities for the EU-India Water Call, with Eduardo Silva from the Centre for Robotics and Autonomous Systems (CRAS). These actions allowed me to work with state-of-the-art technologies and establish scientific collaborations, a feather in my cap.
